Maintenance of Parks and Reserves

The City of Melville maintains numerous parks, both passive (non-reticulated) and active (reticulated).

On occasions, there may be an issue at a park, such as watering restrictions affecting the park maintenance schedule. Such issues may be out of the City's control, which may affect the state of any park, reserve or environmental area.  For any works being completed please see Current Works.

Playground & Exercise Equipment

The City aims to provide safe equipment within parks that our residents and their families can utilise and enjoy. When a playground equipment piece becomes unsuitable for use, the City may consider the replacement of the Playground. Where possible, the City will aim to provide maintenance of the playground equipmentOn occasions a new site for play equipment is identified either as part of a project such as the old Melville Primary School park development or through consultation with community groups.

New, replacement, exercise equipment and repairs may take a few months, due to the tender, approval and fitting process. Playground equipment includes only those items within an area for children to play (slides, sandpits, climbing rails etc). Also includes seats nearby for people to sit and watch children at.
